The goal here was to create a grape flavored bubblegum with a texture reminiscent of the old individually wrapped grape bazooka joe/double bubble style gum. I wanted a nice juicy, candied grape flavor/texture with, at the same time, somewhat of a dry smooth texture to emulate the dryness that one would find on the outside of the gum before chewing it and I think this easy, simple recipe hit the nail on the head.
CAP-Bubble Gum. This was a no brainer on the best bubblegum to use here and in all honesty the best bubblegum to use, period. I tried numerous bubblegums and none of the 6 that I have on hand would have gotten the job done like the CAP did. It provided me with the perfect flavor and texture for the profile I was after. It provided me with that dry, somewhat chewy 'pink' flavor. I started out at 2% but, quickly realized that this this low the flavor was not full enough so, I upped it to 4% and bingo, I got what I was looking for. However, that percentage also provide me with a little harshness which I was not fond of.
FW-Whipped Cream. To curb the slight bit of harshness from the bubblegum I knew that this concentrate would remedy it. I've worked with this ingredient extensively and for some extra mouthfeel and 'smoothing out' properties it was the perfect fit. I started with it at .5% and it worked but, it didn't cut down enough of the harshness. I bumped it to .75% and voila, harshness gone, and a little extra mouthfeel and body.
FW-Grape Soda. I really wanted a single grape flavor that provided the juiciest qualities along with being full bodied and somewhat candied and non realistic. Having worked with this flavor before I new it would be the perfect fit and right off the bat it was. I tinkered around with other grapes just to see if I could improve what I already had unsuccessfully and ended up going with this, my original choice. Having used it at 3% elsewhere I knew that was right where it needed to be.
CAP-Super Sweet. Of course, being that this is a bubblegum we needed to add a little extra sweetness to it so, .5% suited this mix perfectly. Feel free to raise or lower this to preference.
FLV-Candy Roll. Having watch all of the NOTED series and taking the advice from ID10-T on this possibly working to add dryness to a bubblegum, I decided to try it. It worked. And at .5% it seemed to add what I was looking for without compromising flavor at all.
Right off the shake it's pretty well good to go. I dont wait for a steep personally but, I do notice that after the 3 day mark the flavors seem to marry together and become more so one with eachother.
Hope you enjoy!
First of all before I start...big shout out to @ID10T for the great insight and flavour notes on the coffee episode. FLV Irish cream and VTA coffee liqueur are both sex in a bottle! (ZERO CAT PISS DETECTED).
Now let’s get down with the nitty gritty...
Time for the ultimate tastebud seduction with this absolutely delicious Tiramisu recipe! I have put so much work into this recipe to get it exactly like the desert itself and I honestly couldn’t be happier with it. I would add flavour notes but if I’m completely honest with you guys,anyone who knows their flavours SHOULD take one look at this recipe and see it’s got serious potential. Plus I’m currently very poorly and tbh,really can’t be fucked to be writing countless notes. Please take it from me....this COULD be one of the best Tiramisu recipes you might ever mix/try and I’m glad I can share it with you all. Please leave your feed back for me that’s all I ask in return as it helps me grow as a mixer. Please allow Atleast a week for the full experience as I intend it to be but truth be told this shit is good off the shake after a 2hr warm bath.
A delicious jam covered waffle. Shake and vape certified. Fresh strawberry jam flavor that was a little strong but calms down with time.
Jam - Shisha Strawberry, Strawberry (ripe), Sweet Strawberry - These 3 strawberries make up a sweet delicious strawberry jam.
Syrup - Golden Syrup - Fills out the middle of the vape for me. With a 4 week steep, the Golden Syrup really pops.
Waffle - Belgian Waffle and Waffle - The combo of these two is great, you get some of the fluffy Belgian waffle while still having some of the burned waffle from straight off the waffle iron.
Cream Topping - Sweet Cream and Whipped Cream - This finished the recipe with a bit of cream for good measure.
I won't consider this to be a completed endeavor for quite sometime... There are so many different ways to play with this idea... Heavy on the banana, heafy on the raspberry? Light banana, with a touch of shisha strawberry for a syrupy feel to the raspberry?? I don't know.... I need your help. This one is going completely public use. Who cares if some sh***y company decides to rip it, they would either way.
Let me know what you do with this. Let me know if you hate this, love this, or sold this recipe to a candy shoppe for a fat check. :) I hope you all get something from it.
This is a recipe inspired by Rain posted in the Reddit/DIY_eJuice August 2017 Recipe thread by u/bkenn22 .
It is a french patisserie-inspired imaginary dessert. I’ve been really enjoying FA zeppola lately, and using to make a more doughy biscuit/cake/pastry type base. This is like a doughy frosted pineapple tart, whatever that is, and definitely one of the best recipes I’ve come up with. Originally I wanted a cooked or darkened pineapple profile, and was tempted to start adding in TFA brown sugar or FA caramel to find it, but somehow came out with both hints of fresh and cooked fruit which I liked, so I decided to keep it that way. This recipe came together the quickly and easily, which for me has often been a sign that the recipe will see frequent orbits in my DIY rotation. Unlike many of my mediocre recipes that have many subtle ingredients everything in this recipe (except the meringue) stands strong and confidently, which is probably why it works well and is definitely something I will take with me into future recipes. I'm quite proud of this, hopefully some others can enjoy this mix as much as me.
INW Pineapple / FA Kiwi
Well I can’t say I “selected” these as using these was the brief I set myself. The pair make for a nice juicy pineapple++ layer with lots of punch and some nice accents. I left the percentages at the original 3/3 strengths as this strength is very versatile, and I didn’t want to play with the ratio as this would change the profile too far from the original recipe.
FA Apple Pie / FA Zeppola
This is the pastry component, and is way more interesting than the common biscuit/cookie/graham combinations we've all seen before. It's by no means realistic to any real foods, and I chose these simply because I was looking for new and interesting ways to build this layer. If I had TPA Pie Crust I would have tried it here, but I don't so I didn't. I don't get much apple from FA Apple Pie but I guess the apple accent is in there somewhere, and probably what is giving me an hint of stewed fruit.
FW Whipped Cream / LA Cream Cheese Icing / FA Meringue
This is a fairly lightweight cream layer from FW, and it's probably not the best whipped cream available, but adding LA CCI gives it a much fuller body and a slightly pungent thickness. I love the way CCI smells and I think the aroma accurately represents it's purpose in the recipe. The meringue is there to sweeten the deal and remind you this is a dessert. It still works without the meringue but it definitely helps round this layer out. I wanted the creams to be just enough for a full mouth feel and smooth exhale, but kept it minimal and light as the fruits in this recipe won't stand up to very heavy creams.
